Former Vice President Joe Biden took questions on the “Today” show this morning, but one of his answers on gun control was, shall we say, incoherent.
The woman in the video below asks Biden on his thoughts on gun control in light of the hero who was legally armed and shot Devin Kelley in Texas. Biden’s answer was all over the place and made no sense. It sounds like Biden says that Stephen Willeford, the former NRA instructor who stopped Kelley with his “assault weapon” — Biden’s words — should never have had this legal gun in the first place.

Did Biden not hear the question?
I'm not sure Biden quite understood what he was being asked here. It sounds like he's talking about the shooter, not the guy who stopped him.https://t.co/s1Z0HZx7qN

We’ve listened multiple times and aren’t sure ourselves:
If I watched that 100,000,000 times I still couldn't make sense of that statement

I don’t think that’s what he said. Sounds like he was talking about the shooter, though vague. https://t.co/dd3ZBdCAAy

Or maybe Biden didn’t know what happened?

If Biden does run, he might not be the Dem hero everyone thinks he’ll be:
